Midi Towers: You've Come a Long Way, Baby

Side And Interior Views

The engineers at Lian Li again devoted their intention to how to best use the small interior space available. They did a very good job. A rubber coating has been added to the edges.

Looks tight, but there's loads of room for hardware

Interior Layout

  3. 3.5" drives (HDDs)
  4. 5.25" drives (burner, CD/DVD)

Fixtures For The Drives

The cage for the hard drives can be removed from the case for assembly. The drives are placed upright beside one another in the cage. The drives are not isolated acoustically, however. Up to five storage media can be squeezed into the cage. However, be warned that the drives are so close to each other in this arrangement that the system fan on hand is not able to do a good job of cooling. Hint: Try doing without one of the hard disks.

The cage is removable.

The hard drives are installed vertically.
